 Rejina Rahim: From Nomura Asset Management MD to Starting Wahine Capital to Financially Empower Women

After almost 3 decades in the corporate world, specifically within the capital markets and asset management sphere, Rejina Rahim left her job as the Managing Director of Nomura Asset Management Malaysia and founded Wahine Capital during the COVID lockdowns.

Wahine Capital’s main vision is to empower women through financial knowledge and collaborative platforms, serving to revolutionise women's role in the economy, starting with the launch of their first product W Vault in May 2023.

On this episode of Open For Business, we explore Rejina’s move from away from corporate life and lessons learnt during the transition to startup founder and entrepreneur, the mission behind Wahine Capital and future products in the world, and how she plans to support women while building a profitable business.
